Grateful for you

My new stamp set and dies arrived the other day and I was able to play a little bit yesterday. This is called Hello Friend and has the matching die to the flowers and leaves in the set. The flowers are colored with various Copic markers and then die cut so they can be popped up around the card base. 

My card base is using the decorative die called Vintage Flourish Pattern that is in white. Stamped the sentiments around the middle as I wanted. Added the flowers around the edges and some jewels for accents. Voila! I am really enjoying this set and have a few more to show you in the coming days. Just need to finish them. Have a wonderful day.

Kind Peony

Good morning. Yes I did need to play with Tree Peony just one more time this week as you can see. How do you not just love coloring flower petals? It is very relaxing and you can do just about any size with a digi image. Aaahhhhh.   Anyways.... We have a few things going on at the PP Blog. Firstly the newest Instant Garden Release called Heart ABloom.
Then we have our Power and Spark Challenge this month called Love to Sparkle.
Lastly our Hues to Use challenge this week. Several fun things for you to check out this extra long weekend.  ;-) 

This one is a little smaller than the one I did the other day so it would fit inside the die I wanted. Colored with various Copic markers in the purple hues. My sentiment is from Nice Things to Say stamp set in the corner. A few pearls and some sparkle finishes this off. Voila!

Friend, my heart a blooms with amazement

Good morning! Are you all ready for the newest Instant Garden digital Color Story from Power Poppy? Well buckle your seat belt this one is GORGEOUS! They are all gorgeous, but this one is close to the heart.  ;-)

Say hello to Heart ABloom! Oh my oh my.... Marcy has some beautiful pictures and story behind her latest in the Color Story Collection series over on the Power Poppy Blog. My week was crazy so I started to color up the larger image last night and only have time to show you the single blossom in this digi called Heart ABloom Hellebore

Now just look at those petals and the layering you can do. Oh talk about swooning! That is yet to come, like I said crazy week. Just happy I did get to color this baby up. I simply cut around the blossom after it was colored with various Copic markers. I then popped it up on dimensionals to the base.
The base is using a Spellbinders die shape and a few layers of matching cardstock. Stamped the sentiment from Vibrant thanks before I added some swiss dots to the white panel. I did sponged it in purple, but with the gray skies it doesn't show well in my photo either sorry about that.  A few jewels and scattered about and a few sparkles for the center of the flower. Voila! 

Be sure to check out the Power Poppy girls who colored up the latest today:

Happy Valentine's day

This is my last one using Va Va Valentines at least for now. My image is colored with various Copic markers then die cut using a standard circle die. 

I then die cut a scalloped heart for the background. The circle is popped up on dimensionals away from the heart. Added some designer paper to the base along the left side. Some enamel dots and a red ribbon with sparkles to finish it off. Voila! Have a wonderful day.

Sweet sock valentine

Good morning. Today's card is using Va Va Valentine for a special request from someone using these adorable socks. Since it is for a girl I knew I wanted to use some extra hearts and lots of sparkle. The heart background panel is a retired Die-Light no longer available but was going to be perfect for the base behind the socks. 

The designer paper was my color choices for the card. I added some faux stitching along the border and added to the base. A die cut flourished leaf and some die cut hearts for the side. Sequins and sparkle to finish it off, Voila! I adore how this turned out especially since I know she is going to love it.  Thanks for stopping by.

Anniversary socks

Happy Friday! The Power and Spark challenge this month is Love to Sparkle. Be sure to link up your creations for your chance to win! I add sparkle to most cards anymore it seems, but the added love is perfect. I knew the minute I saw the Va Va Valentine digi that it was meant to be this years Anniversary card for my husband. These digi's can be used for more than just valentine cards which is great. I colored the socks with copic markers and then layered onto some pink card stock. 

Before I layered the designer paper to the base I added a Spellbinders die cut edge to the base and my sentiment panel in the middle. A few silver brads to the top right and then added the image panel and some sparkle of course. I think this turned out super cute and I know he will appreciate it.

Grateful Peony Friend

Hello. Well the basketball season is officially wrapped up for the boys. We have a few weeks break before baseball officially starts and I could use the break myself.  :-)  Just a few things to get taken care of before we are off to the races again. I enjoy every minute of it, don't kid yourself. hee hee 

Just a quick card for you today using Tree Peony image. I have enlarged it to fit the panel of my card base. My flower is colored using various Copic markers then cut around so that I could pop it up on dimensionals on the base. 
The base is die cut using a Spellbinders die and then a strip of designer paper added to the edge. Also on the inside is a matching strip so when the card is closed you see the designer paper through the die cut. My sentiment from Nice Things to Say stamp set and then a few sequins to finish it off. Voila!
